Kuhn chatted about the concert during yesterday's interview.

"I'm really excited," she said about the concert. "I haven't sung live for months. We've all done a lot of benefits and things but it's never actually totally live because it's complicated technology. But this will really be me in my house singing, Seth at his piano in his house playing, and chatting over the interweb."

She talked about what it's been like adjusting to virtual performances and the technology that goes along with it.

"I have all of this technology now in my house that they sent me that I was taught which thing to hook up where," she said. "Technology has never been my friend, so I was not made for pandemic life."

Kuhn went on to talk about what fans can expect if they tune into the concert.

"You never know with Seth," she said. "I sing a lot of music, a lot of it is stuff we've done together before, because we have limited time to actually rehearse."

"[Seth] has things that he likes to do with me so I always honor that," she said. "Then of course there are the things that people always want me to sing, or expect me to sing. So, it'll be some greatest hits from my career, some songs that I've recorded, some songs that I like to sing..."

Throughout the rest of the interview, Kuhn discussed the importance of voting, what the future of the theatre industry looks like, highlights from her career, and more!
